Right now, after I've spent 15 minutes working on something and saving my work along the way, if I lose my data because something didn't run fsync in that 15 minutes, I'm going to be royally pissed. It takes a lot of speed increase on a benchmark to make up for 15 minutes of lost work. The time that users lose when stuff goes wrong doesn't show up on benchmarks, though.
